Gazette Honored
by CASE 2003

The Gazette has been awarded a Gold Medal for periodical staff writing for five articles written over the past year by associate editor Susan Frith and senior editor Samuel Hughes: “When the Search is Over,” “Spreading the Words,” “Make it Plain!,” and “Cutting Through the Smoke.” We also received two Silver Medals for visual design—for illustration and an 18-month Gazette Centennial calendar designed by art director Catherine Gontarek as a thank-you gift for donors of $100 or more.
